DIY Lego Travel Case
My kids are good travelers. We haven’t had to do many long trips with them yet but the few 5-6 hour car rides we have done have gone smoothly. One of the key ingredients to a happy traveler is not letting them get bored. We have a portable TV that we also take on trips but love to have some other things for them to do than just watch movies the whole time. Sometimes I’ll run to a local dollar store and grab a few fun “toys”, treats, or activities they can do. Then at the top of each hour we are traveling they get their next item. Of course this isn’t something we do every time, but set aside for special trips. It’s also important for them to learn that sometimes you just have to travel and behave whether or not your getting rewarded. 🙂 These lego travel cases are such a fun on-the-go activity to have on hand. They are great for long trips, a day filled with errands, or just something to play with at home.
